Best Time To Visit Amritsar

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Amritsar is located in northern Punjab, only 28 km away from the Wagah Border. It is the second largest city in Punjab and it’s one of the most popular travel destinations in North India. The best time to visit Amritsar depends mainly on the weather condition in Amritsar. Like the rest of north-western India, the city braves a semi-arid climate throughout the year. Amritsar temperature is usually extreme in both summer and winter seasons. During the monsoon season, Amritsar climate is generally cloudy and humid.

Overall, October through March is the best time to visit Amritsar and enjoy sightseeing for attractions such as Harmandir Sahib, Jallianwala Bagh, Gurudwara Mata Kaulan, and Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum. Let’s take a closer look at the best season to visit Amritsar below:

Climate in Amritsar

Summer Season in Amritsar

Summer in Amritsar lasts from April to June. In the month of April, the season sets in with the daytime temperatures reaching 40 degree Celsius. The month of May is dry and hot with blistering heat waves. The weather in Amritsar in June reaches the worst with the temperature as high as 45 degrees. Summer is not the ideal time to visit Amritsar unless absolutely necessary. Before the onslaught of the monsoon in Amritsar, the city experiences excessive heat and dust storms in summer.

Monsoon Season in Amritsar

Between July and October, monsoons in Amritsar are also warm and humid. However, the season does bring a welcome relief after the sweltering heat in summer. The city experiences mild to heavy rainfall in August and September mostly. On a cloudy day without rainfall, the weather can be really humid. So, monsoon is also not the best season to visit Amritsar. The average temperature is around 32°C and humidity is around 77%, making the holidays in Amritsar unpleasant.

Winter Season in Amritsar

Winter season in Amritsar sets in from November and lasts through March. During this time of the year, the weather in Amritsar is ideal for outdoor sightseeing and other activities. Days are sunny and nights are really chilly. The weather in Amritsar in December is usually foggy and the mean temperature hovers around 11 degrees. Night temperatures in Amritsar in January often drop below 5°C.

On the bright side, winter in Amritsar brings out the lively side. Travelers can get a glimpse of various festivals such as Guru Nanak Jayanti and Lohri celebrated during this season. So, winter is the most popular and the best time to visit Amritsar. Make sure to book hotel reservations and train tickets in advance to save money and last-minute hassles.

    Zamindar

    Mumbai

    Zamindar's 8 days trip to Amritsar

    It was a wonderful experience touring with one of Travel Triangle's associated Tour Operator "Wild Lotus". the services were great. Special thanks to the Tour Manager Rakesh Gilly for being so cooperative. He has been always there for any assistance. The Hotels were as commited just had to compromise a bit with food at some hotels. Hotels provided at Shimla & Dharamshala were the best anyone can get at this price. Hotels at Manali, Dalhousie & Amritsar were also fair enough if compared to the price they charged. Even the car which was provided for local transport was new & in good condition as promised by Rakesh Gilly. The driver was very humble, professional & deciplined. The itenerary was very well planned by Rakesh Gilly & covered almost every tourist spot. In all it was a great experience & from now Wild Lotus will be my preferred tour operator when it comes to touring North India. Thanks again Rakesh Gilly.

    Nikhil Ramesh

    Delhi

    Nikhilramesh's 4 days trip to Amritsar

    Overall trip was good. They followed whatever mentioned in the package. Only thing is we felt that the driver was not properly briefed. For the first day we reached Chandigarh very late hence we had to take dinner on the way other than from the booked hotel. This expense has been agreed and allowed to deduct. Appreciate for that. The hotel at Chandigarh was fine. But hotel at Amritsar was not that much standard one. Plus the dining area was not good place. Food was very good in both places. Car driver is very good. driving was perfect. But there was no space at all in this Innova to keep the luggage. we struggled to accommodate and had to keep in the seats. We all came from different places hence all were having luggage. Overall it is very good.

He was so cooperative and polite with us. He has tried his level best to maintain our schedule.
